A Whole 'Lotta Nonsense Goin' On
I've watched the Resident Evil film series from beginning to end, and I must say from the outset that you'll find no continuity issues of any kind with the timeline from then to now. What I can say is that the journey there has been nothing more than a Ferris wheel or merry-go-round of plot holes and unbelievabilities. The story that has gotten us here may be cinematically linear, but the reasons why these characters are doing what they're doing--especially in Retribution--make no sense. It's as if we are seeing these characters we've grown with in the videogame series only for name recognition and not for any kind of plot importance. Now, having no idea of the story line from the games since RE: Nemesis, I can't determine one way or the other if what we saw in Retribution is accurate to the game. All I know is I spent the entire movie trying to figure it out. Instead of enjoying it. Which was fine, because it was hard to do that anyway. Neither good nor bad, better to wait for DVD.
